Plantar, Where to Run in Moncton, and trail runners: my most recent articles in the latest issue of Canadian Running

Most of you know me as the ubiquitous blogger or that “damn guy is clogging up my news feed with his egotistic crap again.”

But wait: I write other egotistic stuff elsewhere!

Aren’t you lucky.

Since the first issue of Canadian Running, I’ve been fortunate to be a contributing editor with the publication.

The current issue just hit the news stands and I’m pleased to have contributed to the cover story on the annual Golden Shoe Awards, meant to honor the best Canadian runners over the last year; written a piece on plantar, which many of you know I battled last year; and penned an article on where to run in the New Brunswick city of Moncton.

The fifth annual Golden Shoe Awards, as in previous years, honors runners who made a difference.  My contribution reports on two ultrarunners, who ran Prince Edward Island from tip-to-tip. The story is here (with others): http://runningmagazine.ca/current/

Readers of this blog know that when I first began it a year this coming February (I know! It’s not even a year old and yet you already feel like it’s been around for a eon, but that’s a good thing, right?), I wanted to write about running about a sub-three marathon. But ironically the day I wrote my very first post, plantar struck me, altering my plans. Small wonder, then, I got curious about the injury and wanted to know more. Here’s the plantar primer: http://runningmagazine.ca/2012/12/sections/health-nutrition/body-work/sole-mates-plantar-fasciitisplantar-fasciitis/

Finally, Moncton is a city I know well. I’ve run full and half marathons at the annual Legs for Literacy event; had the pleasure of exploring the Hub City’s river-side paths on more relaxed jaunts; and, generally, run the city’s streets, hung out at its terrific restaurants and stayed at a couple of excellent hotels there over the last 11 years. Should you find yourself there anytime soon, this On the Run guide might be of use: http://runningmagazine.ca/2012/12/sections/runs-races/on-the-run-in/on-the-run-in%E2%80%A6-monctonon-the-run-in-moncton/

About subthree

A multiple award-winning journalist, I'm currently a contributing editor with both Canadian Running and Canadian Cycling magazines. My articles have appeared in Explore, Canadian Geographic, enRoute, The National Post, The Globe and Mail, and many other magazines and newspapers. Formerly a competitive cross-country mountain biker, I switched to running in 2006. I've run seven marathons, qualifying for Boston five times (and which I've run once). Generally, I've placed or won in my age group in races, in distances ranging from five and 10 kms to half and full marathons. I've also taught spin classes at a number of leading Eastern Canadian gyms. Sub-three was a 2012 #Runchat finalist for Best Overall Blog.
